On the Mend.

Today is the end of week 3, and my foot is getting better.   I can finally put weight on it without feeling pain, but still have discomfort with some tendons on the top left of foot.  I finally gave in and listened to my podiatrist and put my foot in a boot for 3 days, which did help.   I attempted to run twice in the 3 weeks which was a foolish idea.  I usually run through injuries, but having a foot injury is a different story.    Basically i strained the tendons in my foot and around my ankle,  my foot really started to hurt during my NYC Barefoot run.

I can’t really pin point when this injury happened, strains are a gradual injury and they are tough to determine when it exactly happened, but I think I have good idea when I did it.  I am sure it happened when I was messing around with my older son in the back yard jumping over lawn furniture, and off the picnic table.  I think it’s time to give up lawn furniture jumping,  I’m 40 not 20.

Anyways being out of commission for this long is new territory for me.  I was cranky, angry, and depressed at times.  I think the psychological aspects is more difficult to handle than the actually injury.  I learned allot from this injury, mainly just to appreciate running in its simplistic form.   It’s a beautiful fall morning right now, and a perfect day for a run,  I might test out the foot and see what happens, if it’s a no go I will not push it.

My sweetie is proud of her snowman she made, or I should say Sammy as the name she gave him. Family skate day. My mom at a young 70 lacing up the skates! My favorite girl.
#mysweetie So intense. Power and strength to the max. Who says dinosaurs don’t exist. Sunday morning 3 mile barefoot run. Blowing the dust off the skins. I like to incorporate deadlifts with my back workout. This was my last set of 240lbs for 6 reps. Seeking that 300lb mark down the road.

It’s starting to warmup in the garage, 25 degrees this morning. “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” MLK 🔥
